Say that I setup a symbolic link:

 mklink  /D C:\root\Public\mytextfile.txt C:\root\Public\myothertextfile.txt

is there a way to see what the target of myothertextfile.txt is using the command line?

  • I don't understand the question. Can you please be more descriptive? – John Homer Apr 17 '12 at 21:26
